The first game of the trip was cold, windy and rainy.It rained heavily during batting practice for over 20 minutes and several times there was a light rain during the game. By the 3th inning the rain was gone, but the wind and chill remained.

The Czech Republic baseball team took the field with Martin Schneider on the mound. Snyder had recently pitched his team to wins against the number 1 and 2 teams in Europe and he continued his success against the Planet Baseball team.

Planet Baseball took the lead 3-2 in the top of the 4th inning with an RBI single by Bryan Creel followed by a 2-RBI double by Joe Dattoli. However, the lead crumbled under a 10-run bottom of the 4th by Czech Republic. The Planet Baseball bats were mostly cold and Snyder’s pitches proved difficult to handle fanning 9 batters before leaving after five innings. Final score was Planet Baseball 3 – Czech Republic 13.

Only six hits on the day for Planet Baseball were tallied with Joe Dotalli getting a double and single.

It was a tough outing for the pitchers with Nick Logan taking the loss. (unofficial stats)
